It seems poker sites are moving away from players able to compile huge databases of opponents hands. We see this with anonymous log-ons, PokerStars is attempting to limit what you can and can't save into PokerTracker - HM2 and others.
How do the CardsChat members feel about this?? Like it, Hate it, Don't care ???? I would like to hear what people think.
I am a huge fan of being able to record all of my hands so I can review, I am not sure how I feel about all the rest of the limitations and Anon- Log-ons.
I am ok with anon opponents, I don't necessarily think you should be able to build a database of information on opponents using a hud. I do think that being able to rely on my hud to track info for individual sessions is important though. I will almost certainly play fewer tables if I can't see at a quick glance who is playing tight, loose, etc.
Also, yeah, it is really important for me to be able to track my own hand history so that I can easily review.
The advantage of online poker is over the entire database. If there is no database, it is like playing live. For example, we can play in a multi-player table one day and the other day one or two of those players are at our table. That is a great advantage for us if we have a database.
It Works Great and though I Have it set up for that sessions stats and have only been using it for two months now I found in the MySQL database 65,763 Players User Names have been recorded lol That's enormous... But that's across three platforms... maybe I should think about selling the data base to build bank roll...Hmmm HUD Sellers make money at it why shouldn't we...
Maybe CardsChat could have a Thread for the Sale of DataBase Data... is that ethical ? Would you buy the info?

I'm kind of indifferent I guess. All that matters to me is how a player is playing during the game I'm in. Players can change habits and playing styles at any moment. So, what they used to do matters very little to me. If it happens to match up with trends, I'll pick up on that. If it doesn't, the data is useless anyway.
